I was reading about 6 Word Memoirs.   Their slogan is “One life.  Six words.  What’s yours?”

A little confusing?

Basically in 6 words, describe:

Happiness (6 words on the secrets to life and happiness such as “Break some rules. Enjoy the euphoria.”)

Love (6 words on love & heartbreak such as “caveat emptor. read the label honey.”)

I found that site based on Angela’s post about 6 word love stories.

So let’s play along, here’s some of my 6 word phrases about happiness and life:

From my last recipe post about the Ketchup & Mustard Lover’s Protein & Veggie Mash, thanks for letting me know if you’re a condiment lover, and if so, which ones.   Lots of us seem to enjoy a little food with our condiments.

After all those deep 6 word descriptions, it’s time to rest my brain and turn the floor over to you.


1. Best thing you’ve ate or done so far this weekend?

I had a super productive errand running day and found some cute things while out.  Stay tuned. Hint: They have to do with Item #4 on my Wish List

2. Do you have Monday off for President’s Day?

No, darn.  Neither from my unpaid work as chef, mother, wife, butt-wiper, dish-do’er, nor from my paid work.

3. 6 Words.  You’re up.  Rattle off 6 words to describe life, happiness, love, heartbreak, loss, whatever you’re feeling inspired to put out there.

If you have more than 6 words and are feeling wordy, repeat.

Can’t wait to read your deep thoughts!  In 6 words.  Almost like Haiku, which I loved creating in 5th grade.

P.S. If you’re just catching up on posts from the weekend, here were mine since Friday.
